This is book three in a series but it is one that's flexible. Each book focuses on a different character. This one is about Lucetta. I really like Lucetta because she does her own thing no matter what other people think. I'm sure many of us would love to be more like that at least I would. She gets into a bit of trouble when her stepfather loses at gambling. He gives her the option to marry Silas or give her stepfather the deed to the house.
Abigail is an older woman that took Lucetta and the other women from the previous books under her wing. She's the sort that takes charge and starts looking for potential husband material. She takes Lucetta to her grandson's house. I was pleasantly surprised when I was reading and laughed when I read about the goat and the dresses. I certainly didn't expect that to happen and have to say that's one of my favorite parts of the book. Who wouldn't laugh at Geoffrey the goat who has a thing against dresses and is afraid of swords? Actually being afraid of a sword isn't such a dumb thing especially when you're not the one holding it. Lucetta is hiding out and wackiness ensues. I want to go to Ravenwood.
I will be reading more by Jen since I really enjoyed all of the characters. They are all quite entertaining.This was an easy read. I think it would be just the remedy after reading a really heavy book. That's when you need to have a laugh and this book fits the bill. I can't wait to get my hands on the first two books in this series. I wish I had the time to read the two before this one since I think it would have been that much better although I really did enjoy this book quite a bit. I really love it when I'm able to laugh at a book. Sure I might look a little crazy if I happen to be out and I'm laughing or yelling at a book but I'm sure my fellow book lovers totally understand although I'm not sure how many of you out there read walk like I do.
